The Johnson & Johnson commitment to empowering women
Partnering with Diverse Suppliers
At Johnson & Johnson, we recognize the importance of having a diverse supplier base that reflects our patients
and customers around the world. By working with small and diverse suppliers, including those that are
women-owned, we tap into new ideas that add value to our businesses and provide innovative solutions to our
marketing, manufacturing and research & development efforts. Our Supplier Diversity Program helps us attract
qualified small and diverse suppliers to support our business needs.
Championing Women Leaders
Johnson & Johnson Women’s Leadership & Inclusion (WLI) Employee Resource Group exists to foster an
inclusive organizational environment that champions the advancement of women. Through WLI’s focus
pillars: Inclusion, Advancement and Community, we provide tools and resources to facilitate a culture that
enables women to connect and engage across the enterprise, to develop skills and to achieve their full
professional and personal potential.
Building a Diverse STEM2D Community
With Johnson & Johnson’s WiSTEM2D program — Women in Science, Technology, Engineering,
Math, Manufacturing & Design — we are working to empower women and girls at pivotal moments
in their lives to fuel their passion for progress and to realize their dreams. Our WiSTEM2D initiative
is sparking enchantment in young girls globally, creating opportunity for university students and
researchers and igniting females’ technical careers. As of May 2021, the WiSTEM2D program has
reached more than 10 million girls around the world and has partnered with over 50 global
universities with a goal of impacting 500,000 female students.
Supporting Professionals After a Career Break
The Johnson & Johnson Re-Ignite program is a paid returnship for experienced professionals ready to return to
work after a career break of two years or longer. It allows for experienced professionals to get back to their careers
alongside others who have been where they are, who understand and appreciate nontraditional career journeys,
unique skills and life experience. We believe pausing one’s career to pursue something else important shouldn’t
stand in the way of their next breakthrough—it should enhance it.
